Annual Giving & Naming Opportunities
Each donor has his or her own personal reason for giving. It may be an acknowledgement of gratitude or a desire to help provide quality, compassionate care to others. Regardless of the reason, know that your gift at any of the following levels of annual giving will make a big difference in how Hospice of the Upstate services the community:
Located just outside the dining facility in the Callie & John Rainey Hospice House, The Wall of Continuing life is a unique giving opportunity in which loved ones can be honored or memorialized. Our newest handmade picturesque tile wall portrays the natural beauty of South Carolina, featuring a beautiful waterfall, a peaceful stream full of life, and lovely native wildflowers and faunas.
This peaceful landscape, Ellen’s Meadow, named after our dear friend Ellen Sadler, is the work of skilled claysmith Rob Gentry and will be complete in early 2015. Recognized as one of South Carolina’s top professional artisan, Rob has been a claysmith for over 30 years. It is a privilege for Hospice of the Upstate to work with Rob on our second project.
To recognize a loved one, a donation can be made. Once a donation has been received, the three-dimensional tile will be created by artist. This will added to the mural quarterly. In addition to the tile for the mural, two identical tiles will be created. Each tile will feature a picture of the item purchased and the name of the individual being honored. One time will be placed on the wall beside the mural, and one will be given to the individual or family as a keepsake.
Please contact the Development Office for availability of designs.
Hospice of the Upstate invites you to create a lasting tribute to your loved one by ordering a personalized memorial brick. These full sized memorial bricks are added to our walkways to honor loved ones. All proceeds from the sale of memorial bricks help provide care and comfort for other patients and families facing the end of life.
